Walter Murphy - Please Sue Me : Best Of The 80's Rip Offs
« on: September 22, 2020, 01:06:45 AM »
Yes, the title tells you exactly what this comp I quickly made for myself is all about  ;D I hurled this together today off of several of the original Valentino 80's CD's that Retromatic posted last week. 18 cuts total.

If you were alive and old enough in the 80's, you'll get a kick out of these and maybe even some nostalgia (as I did) if you know exactly what each tune is a rip off of. I grouped em semi-chronologically per the era of hits they ripped off. '83 - '86 is the time frame.

Dare I say a few of these are actually better than the originals that were being ripped off (a few where Murphy put his own almost 70's throw back style melodies and grooves into em). Enjoy and see if you can name all the rip offs  8]
